’I met Linda when she was my boss at Media Sales and Marketing,
Capital Radio’s old sales house. I was always impressed by the way she
dealt with people in a warm and very human manner. She taught me that,
at the end of the day, this industry is about relationships, and that
you don’t need to be an utter bastard to get on in media. At least, it’s
not a prerequisite.
I think a lot of newcomers to the industry don’t realise that. Linda was
always aware that what goes around comes around.
’She also taught me to remember that people are fallible and usually
quite approachable on some level. If you can operate on that basis, it
saves a lot of stress.’
